IELTS Speaking topic: A team you have been part of

Describe a team you have been part of.
You should say:
when this team was formed
who was on the team
what you did together
and explain why you became part of the team.

Let me talk about the project I did in a team in the second year of my graduate school. Our tutor gave us an assignment to review the server log of an international trade website and give a brief analytics using the data warehouse and data mining technology. We had three people in the team, and I was the team leader. I allocated different tasks to different classmates, one was responsible to extract the data from the database to the data warehouse, and the other one was to set up the data model for analyzing. I was to analyze the final data set with a data mining software and prepare the presentation.

I was part of the team because I was good at inspiring others to achieve our goals and getting the necessary resources to help us. You know, the job was quite tough as this was our first time to do such assignment and we needed to overcome various technique problems. For example, we had to put great efforts to learn the Microsoft database software and the data mining software which was also new to us. I consistently encourage my teammates to overcome these problems.
